Attention All Hands:

Access to MCB Camp Pendleton will be changing imminently.  Very soon a DBIDS card will be required for access to MCBCP.  All Non-CAC Card holders will be required to present a DBIDs (Department of Defense Biometric Identification) Card for entry to Base.  There is no cost for the card and it will be good for a one year timespan.

You will be required to come to the Main Gate and be fingerprinted, photographed and sign for a card that will then be issued subsequent to the completion of a Background Check. The Background Check and processing can take up to 90 days.

Please go to the Membership page of the website to obtain the DBIDS instructions and DBIDS form, as well as the 2019 SMGC Membership Application form.

The SMGC is still in the process of getting our Licensing Agreement Process.  Please DO NOT go to the base and attempt to get your DBIDS Card until you receive an e-mail from us informing you of when you can go.


SMGC Inc. is proud to announce the appointment of Major Bedle USMC to the position of Executive Director, effective immediately. Major Bedle will be executing all official business for the Club and BoD with MCBCP henceforth.

Lastly, SSgt. Wayne Gallagher will assume the post of Director of Operations. SSgt. Gallagher will be working with the Gunner to effectively manage RSO/OIC Training, submission of TARs (Training Area Requests) and etc. in support of operations.
